NIGERIAN GOVERNOR’S FORUM REJECT #60,000 MINIMUM WAGE                                                                                                         07-06-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                  The 36 state Governors under the aegis of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum have rejected the 60, 000 minimum wage earlier proposed by the Federal Government.
In a statement by the Acting Head of Media and Public Affairs of the forum Hajiya Halima Salihu-Ahmed says the amount is not realistic unsustainable arguing that if Implemented, it would force some states in the country to be borrowing to pay workers salaries.
The statement noted that Governors are in agreement that a new minimum wage was due, but cautioned the labour unions in their push for higher wages.

The Forum urges all parties to consider the fact that the minimum wage negotiations also involve consequential adjustments across all cadres, including pensioners and cautions parties in this important discussion to look beyond just signing a document for the sake of it that any agreement to be signed should be sustainable and realistic.

The statement adds that N60,000 minimum wage proposal is not sustainable and cannot fly, as it will mean that many states will spend all their FAAC allocations on just paying salaries with nothing left for development purposes and will end up borrowing to pay workers every month.
The statement appeals that all parties involved, especially the labour unions, consider all the socioeconomic variables and settle for an agreement that is sustainable, durable, and fair to all other segments of the society who have legitimate claim to public resources.
